The Ghanaian economy is developing rapidly and with this development comes increased competition for resources. One of the key resources to any company’s success is it’s people. Good employees are like gold. Keep them. Retain talent and improve your employees’ benefits with risk solutions to employer and affinity groups.

At Vanguard Life Assurance Company Limited (Vanguard Life), we realize the need to attract and retain resources and we have developed a Comprehensive Employee Risk Benefit Solution which will allow you to attract and retain staff.

Currently the law in Ghana requires all Employees to be covered under the Workmen’s Compensation Act of 1987 updated by the Workmen’s Compensation Instrument of 1994. The benefits cover employees should an injury occur in the Workplace.

Some companies have extended this cover to allow for Death or Disability which results from an Accident. The event is covered either in the workplace only or over a 24 hour period.

The Global trend is to offer Benefits which not only cover you in the event of an accident or event taking place in the Workplace but to cover all employees regardless of where the event occurs or the cause of the event. This is commonly known as “All occurrences benefits” or also referred to as “Any cause” benefits.

To avoid the duplication of cover Vanguard Life provides flexibility to choose stand-alone benefits or packaged benefits which include a combination of Workmen’s Compensation, Group Personal Accident and all occurrences benefits.

Vanguard Life will guide you through a process of benchmarking insurance benefits against that of your peers and international companies to ensure your staff have the best risk benefits.

Vanguard Life Employee Risk Benefit Plan is an insurance policy designed to provide life insurance cover for employees of an institution. We summarize the benefits which are offered to Employees to cover against Life events which will have a financial impact on the company or employee and the dependent family.

It is common practice for companies to purchase a package of the benefits outlined below.

Group Funeral Plan-ENTERPRISE LIFE

The objective of this plan is to insure the obligations of the employer in the unlikely event of an employee's death.

Most conditions of employment as well as tradition require and impose financial obligations on the employer in the event of an employee's death. This includes provision of coffin, donation to family, transport arrangement and refreshment for other staff members. This obligation can be insured under the Group Funeral Plan.

The plan provides for the payment of funeral and related expenses on behalf of the employer in the event of an employee's death.

The benefits can be extended to cover parents, spouses and children.

Benefits levels shall be objectively determined to reflect the expected financial obligation of the employer.

Premiums are relatively low and depend on the average age of the group and number of employees to be covered.

Medical examinations shall not be required.

These are top ups that one can take in addition to the main policy one of which is the Personal Accident.

Personal accident:
Personal Accident has three main components. These are
  •  Permanent Disability Cover: This seeks to provide the payment of a lump sum in the event of a covered member being permanently disabled as a result of an accident. The extent of the incapacitation is determined by a medical doctor and thus the payment is made on a pre-determined agreed scale of incapacitation.
  •  Temporary Disability Cover: This also seeks to provide the payment of a weekly benefit up to a maximum of 52 weeks as a result of temporary disablement resulting from an accident. The maximum weekly benefit payable is the actual income of the person before the incapacitation.
  •  Medical Expenses Cover: This provides cover for medical expenses arising out of an accident up to a maximum pre-determined figure.
